Alfonso Padilla was born and raised in Miami, FL. He is a first-generation American citizen born to a Cuban mother and Colombian father. From early on Alfonso was introduced to the business of real estate, thru his maternal grandparents owning a Pharmacy and his other paternal grandmother investing in the Miami real estate market while running her own export retail business to Colombia. Riding along with her looking for properties on the weekends was a fun experience that piqued his interest in real estate. Traveling is something Alfonso was fortunate to do from a young age. His parents packed the four kids in the station wagon and drove all over the country. He has taken an RV from Miami to Quebec and back with friends, traveled the States, Caribbean and Europe with family and friends. Whether it is far from home or a week in the summer on our very own Sanibel and Captiva Island’s many beautiful beaches, this is fuel for his soul. Alfonso has fallen in love with paradise in SW Florida. Alfonso moved to Fort Myers in 2012 after his wife accepted a new position to sell commercial real estate in the Naples area. In 2014 Alfonso and his wife, Lydia were blessed to become parents to their spunky little girl, Dora. Being her Dad is a job he does with much love and pride.
After coming to the area, he completed his college education and received his business degree in 2015. In 2017, Alfonso made the decision to follow his childhood passion and become a real estate agent. With Alfonso you will have a true professional on your side.

Alfonso enjoys spending time close to the water, on one of SW Florida’s many great golf courses, walking along the beach, playing his guitar and eating great food or just enjoying a stroll with his family and their yellow Labrador Louie. SWFL living is relaxing, its beautiful, its peaceful and truly what dreams are made of. Coaching his daughter’s soccer team was an experience Alfonso enjoyed tremendously. His love for soccer is one he shares with his daughter Dora. Cheering for Inter Milan and other European teams is a loud and fun family affair in the Padilla house.
